Pinning Favorite Artists to the Start Screen + Windows Phone Radio 11

Windows Phone Radio number 11 is ready to download in the Zune Marketplace or for direct download here. On the show this week we had a chance to sit down with Xbox’s Major Nelson and talk about gaming, taking trips to CES and of course Windows Phone. We also discussed pinning artist tiles to the Start screen, coolest thing being you get the doublewide tile! Really tricks out your Start screen.

Here is how you do it. From the Start screen or the apps list press Music+Videos tile then press music

Once in Music pivot to the artists list and find the artist you want to pin to the Start screen

Once you have the Artist in mind, long press on the artist name to get the sub menu and press “pin to start”

Boom, now you have a double wide tile to trick out your phone! If you want to move that tile from the bottom of the screen, long press on the tile and drag it where you want
